Following the San Francisco 49ers disappointing 0-4 start to the 2010 NFL season, many pundits are speculating as to whether that team’s head coach Mike Singletary, will soon be fired. 

Team and league sources last week told ESPN.com that Singletary’s job was safe.

From ESPN.com:

But just because he is safe for now does not mean he is safe beyond this year. Even if the 49ers were to snap their losing streak, turn around their season and win their division, people familiar with the situation said there are no assurances that Singletary would return even though he has two years remaining on his contract after this season.

Oddsmakers remain skeptical.  The folks at Bookmaker.com have made Mike Singletary a +180 favorite to be the first NFL head coach on the chopping block.  That one pays $18 for every $10 bet.

Other odds on next NFL head coach to be fired were as follows:

21478         TOM CABLE, OAKLAND RAIDERS         +450

21479         ERIC MANGINI, CLEVELAND BROWNS         +450

21480         JACK DEL RIO, JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS         +600

21481         LOVIE SMITH, CHICAGO BEARS         +750

21482         WADE PHILLIPS, DALLAS COWBOYS         +550

21483         MIKE SINGLETARY, SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS         +180

21484         JOHN FOX, CAROLINA PANTHERS         +220

21485         TOM COUGHLIN, NEW YORK GIANTS         +600

21486         JIM SCHWARTZ, DETROIT LIONS         +220

21487         BRAD CHILDRESS, MINNESOTA VIKINGS         +550

21488         CHAN GAILEY, BUFFALO BILLS         +220


Should the 49ers falter against the Eagles this coming weekend, we could see Mike Singletary out before the second half of the season so those +180 odds are certainly looking enticing.  - Tyrone Black reporting.
